***Lost Go Pro on the trail, if found, please call 2067195879. Lost in snow, 13 December 2015, may appear when snow melts. Priceless photos from 2 week roadtrip***

Trail was awesome, be prepared if going during the winter because it gets cold, but the view from the hot springs is totally worth it. 5mile hike in snow took 2hrs from trailhead to hot springs. The water temp was perfect, even with the snowfall around us.
Recommend waterproof shoes & gloves if hiking in snow.

We plan on hiking this trail/forest service road (last five miles) next week. I called the forest service and they said the road is closed until July 1, 2014. Usually it opens June 1 to cars, but the closure until July is part of an effort to preserve the area.

I hiked this trail in April and found it to be a very nice day hike. The 5 mile trek to the hot springs during this time of year required going through some snow and mud though none was very deep. Portions of the road were dry. The gait to the road was closed and even if it was not you still could not make it through as some trees had fallen onto the road. Once you reach the gate just before the hot springs it is a quick jog up the hill. There were only 2 people there when I arrived. Overall a very enjoyable day hike.

The 5-mile walk along the forest service road primed us for absolute relaxation at the beautiful pools. The water is clear and smell-free, the people were friendly and the views and wildlife were amazing. The gate opens June 1 to allow motorized vehicles, but I prefer the walk.

Very nice set of hot springs but it was very crowded about 20 people total on a tuesday afternoon. One large pool and three smaller pools. Easy to find, the road is closed sunset to sunrise. I drove a honda civic up it and hit bottom several times would definetly recomend a high clearence vehicle and wouldnt try if it was wet. the area around the springs is posted day use only. this is the best hot spring in the jemez area by far but dont excpect any privacy.

We went the last week of April and found the trail closed to motor vehicles and was posted day use only. Supposedly they had just closed it, due to fire danger in the forest. But was definately worth the walk in, we had the place to ourselves and it was so beautiful. The ponds were a great temperature too!

As of Labor Day 2005, the trail does allow for motorized vehicles. Most people reached the hot springs in cars or trucks. There is a parking area before the final .25 mile climb. No one was nude, bathing suits were the rule.. and there were families with small children.
